der frontmann der rolling stones ist solo unterwegs und veröffentlichte zu seinem 74. geburtstag zwei singles “gotta get a grip / england lost” die ihm sehr am herzen liegen. Über “gotta get a grip” sagte mick jagger: “ich denke. die botschaft ist. dass du trotz all der dinge. die gerade geschehen. dein leben weiterleben und du selbst sein musst.”

mad dogs and englishmen is joe cocker’s legendary live album. recorded in 1970 at the fillmore east. for this record joe cocker created a unique sound: a veritable definition of big-band rock with three dozen players working behind the singer.
mad dogs and englishmen consists mostly of covers. drawing equally from rock (the rolling stones. traffic. bob dylan. the beatles) and soul (ray charles. sam and dave. otis redding). and is as much a showcase for arranger & bandleader leon russell as it is for joe cocker.
as we now know the tour from which this album was drawn took a heavy toll on joe cocker – and especially his vocal chords – because the music was presented on such a grand scale. nevertheless. the music still stands to this date and beyond.
bereits mit ihrem debüt fever to tell avancierten die yeah yeah yeahs vor zehn jahren zur neuen hoffnung der indie-rock-szene - insbesondere jener ihrer heimatstadt new york city. zwischen ihre mixtur aus rock n roll. post-punk und urbanem blues presste das trio um die charismatische performerin karen o einen großen brocken garagenrock und schuf so ein musikalisches konzept.
combining his heart-piercing songwriter side with a skyscraper of soaring electronics . he takes the listener surfing on an emotional sine wave. an electronic soul testament that earmarks him out as the successor to the thrones long since vacated by massive attack and the aphex twin... two years after his debut album took uk bass culture down previously unimagined roads of introspection. james blake returns with the epic * overgrown*. an incredible album that sees james growing as a singer and songwriter while at the same time returning to the brain melting electronic perfection of his early releases on hemlock and hessle. moving way beyond any post-dubstep pigeonholes to include stunning reinterpretations of both hip-hop and house
duffy is possibly the most exciting prospect for 2008. her ascent from the llyn peninsula to 2008s pole position continues as the 23 year old releases her debut album rockferry. a masterclass in mature. resonant pop. the album includes the singles mercy and rockferry. her soulful voice has already beguiled many of the nations musical tastemakers and news of its beauty and of the strength of her songs is spreading by word of mouth now. as the comparisons fly (dusty springfield has emerged as the favourite). its time to discover her for yourself. duffy was born and spent her childhood years in the north wales coastal community of nefyn. a place too remote to be driven by style wars or opposing music factions. the upbringing she describes is one in which everyone had to rub along together. making do and mending. accepting each other and their tastes without prejudice.
in the year of punk 1977. the jams exploded onto the music scene with this seminal debut album. the raw. unfettered aggression of the bands approach was well in keeping with the spirit of the times. but the heart of their songs and sound lay in the mod movement of the mid 60s. singer/guitarist paul weller comes off like a cross between joe strummer and the young pete townshend. bashing unreservedly through slow down. one of the r&b tunes that inspired the original mods. weller extols the virtues of frenzied dancing and nonconformist youth culture over the raging three chord attack of bassist bruce foxton and drummer rick buckler. the pure punk insouciance of his words and delivery is a perfect match for the raging but hooky arrangements. which basically consisted of the band walking into the studio and blazing through their live set. rickenbacker guitars never sounded so thick. and skinny ties never seemed less geeky.

according to legend. although the velvet undergrounds debut lp only sold about 100 copies when it was originally released. every one who did buy a copy were inspired enough to form their own band. partly as a vehicle for native new yorker lou reeds songwriting. and part pet art project for artist andy warhol (who designed the groundbreaking >peel slowly and see< banana album cover). the band also featured welsh emigre john cale. percussionist mo tucker. guitarist sterling morrison and teutonic. iconic chanteuse nico. recorded in 1966 and issued a year later. it is widely regarded as a precursor to punk and alternative music a decade later. now rightly hailed as an undisputed classic. the dark subject matter and progressive sounds explored on i m waiting for the man. venus in furs. heroin and the black angels death song did little to help propel this experimental group into the mainstream. q regarded it as >a flickering. unforgettable band performance<. whilst it rated at #6 of the nmes greatest albums of all time.
